$50,000 Fire Destroys Buildings
on Estate of William Mitchell
Fire, believed to have been caused by crossed wires and overheating, resulted in the destruction Saturday night of nearly $50,000 worth of property on the country estate of William H. Mitchell, member of the Onwentsia Hunt Club. The place, formerly known as the Cannon Farm, is located two miles southeast of Millburn.
The fire started in a groom's cottage, caught on the barn and spread to a granary and garage before the Antioch and Fox Lake fire departments arrived to check the flames. An insufficient supply of water hindered their efforts.
Realizing the hopelessness of attempting to stop the fire before help was available, the farm employees rescued all the stock, horses, and barn equipment.
Although Mitchell could not be located, his sister, Mrs. Louise Kellogg, of Lake Forest, hastened to the scene.

Smart, deceased, will attend the Probate Court of Lake County, at a term thereof to be holden at the Court House in Waukegan, in said County, on the first Monday of February next, 1931, when and where all persons having claims against said estate are notified and requested to present the same to said Court for adjudication.

Hungry Thieves Steal Corned Beef
From the Y Camp
Although the identity of the vandals who broke into the Y. M. C. A. camp at Hastings Lake, near Millburn, Ill., on Monday, December 15, has not yet been discovered, investigations by Deputy Sheriff McBride reveal that the theft was not made by professional looters in search of valuables, but rather by hungry youths desiring food.
Entrance into the storeroom where the canned corned beef was hidden was effected by breaking a window. Nothing other than the three cases of corned beef, which had been stored for use during the Christmas holidays, was taken.
Three windows in the commissary quarters were found smashed by men who were cleaning there Thursday, preparatory to the boys' coming for the Christmas vacation.
Knives and articles of value which might easily have been taken made no appeal to the marauders.
